Nietzsche Aff for new LD topic (Free speech on college campuses)

Recommended Posts

So I'm writing a Nietzsche aff for the new LD topic, it's "Resolved: In the US, public colleges and universities ought not restrict any constitutionally protected free speech." I've got most of the shell done, but as I was reading through it earlier I realized my link debate was total trash. I'm looking for at least one of the following (both would be preferable):
- Attempts to restrict free speech are just an extension of the will to truth and only ever breed ressentiment through the aversion to suffering caused by certain forms of language etc.

- The modern university/academy is predicated upon promoting post-socratic pedagogies/mentalities of the dionysian and appollonian worlds blah blah then I can read Saurette 96

 

I'm willing to trade for it, I have a ton of backfiles on most things, But I'd really appreciate it if someone could either hit me up with some good evidence or point me to some articles or books to help me out, I can't recall any places where Nietzsche or Der Derian wrote much about free speech/language. Thanks a ton!

 

Note: I guess I have to change my signature now...

Honestly the quality of this link's arguments is kind of low, but it's better than nothing and is unambiguously talking about the topic: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/theory-knowledge/201604/political-correctness-is-all-about-slave-morality. Likely an adequate placeholder, at least.

Suggestion: add the word "censorship" to your Google searches. The relevance of arguments improved when I did that. "Political correctness" also kind of helped. But I still couldn't find anything better in five minutes of searching.

Bonus Zizek's take: https://www.reddit.com/r/philosophy/comments/3z2r8u/slavoj_%C5%BEi%C5%BEek_political_correctness_is_a_more/

Thanks a ton Chaos, appreciate it. Considering all I've found so far is a National Review article that quotes an Anti-Semitic not-really-Nietzsche passage, this is better than what I had.
